Started going for violin lessons (I'm in my 20's with no music background). Had only a couple of classes so far. I really like the pace and her style of teaching. She is professional and very easy to work with.

I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

My 8yr has been learning violin from Helena for 2 years. She is very friendly, patient, considerate while being professional and holding a high standard for her student. Her consistency in teaching and passion in music go a long way with the student. I'm very thankful that we found her.

    Have started lessons with Chloe just one month back for my 9 year old. My daughter and I love the energy and enthusiasm she brings to each lesson. Her focus on technique is something I really appreciate. My daughter was learning violin for about 2 yrs before coming to studio violin, and just month I can see that her music is sounding better with Chloe's detailed focus on basics and techniques. My kid is loving it so far so thumbs up and highy recommend her!

    I found a violin teacher close to my home! It was easy to sign up, answered a few very good questions about what my interests were and what I was looking for. I got contacted the same day. The teacher is 12 minutes from my house.

    My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons from Paul. The piano lessons since age 9 for almost 2 years now, and the violin lessons for a few months now to augment the strings music instruction at her school. He was referred by a family in our neighborhood, and he was open to trial lessons before completely signing on. He goes into music appreciation and history along with his teaching. We have also enjoyed a few recitals of his students along the way - there are three of these each year in student homes, and the anticipation of an upcoming recital is good motivation for the student to practice. For one of these recitals, Paul wrote the sheet music for a popular song that my daughter chose, since there wasn't one readily available. So he goes out of his way to customize the teaching. My daughter has progressed well, and enjoys the experience. I definitely recommend Paul.

    Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am taking violin lessons after several years of not playing and she is very encouraging. After years of playing classical music, I am enjoying taking lessons to explore other styles of music, such as folk music. She has an extensive background that allows for this kind of exploration.

    About

    I am a versatile violinist, with a background in classical, rock, and folk music. I've studied with classical and folk teachers, and am working on a Masters in Violin Performance at SFSU studying under Zak Grafilo, first violinist of the world-class Alexander Quartet. In addition, I write music for my own band, and work as my own manager, promoter, and visual artist. I have experience recording my own music as well as other musician's work. I also play guitar, piano, sing, and dabble on the banjo. As a teacher, I've coached youth rock bands, and taught private lessons to children and adults for many years. I currently work as one of the top teachers at Music N Beyond and Acme Music, teaching violin, piano, and guitar. I also teach private lessons out of my home.

    About

    I am a violin teacher with a music degree from the University in Maine. I have been teaching classical violin for 4 years to students from beginner to advanced/intermediate level on the East Coast and am now available to do so here in the Bay Area. In addition to my classical violin training and teaching experience, I can also teach many different fiddle styles including Celtic, Old Time Appalachian, jazz, swing, contra dance, Quebecois, etc. I am experienced in improvisation and can lend a hand with that as well.
